Rural Aid flood drive boosted by a generous corporate partner

Leading rural charity Rural Aid will be able to assist dozens more flood-affected farmers, thanks to the generous support of Morgans.   

The stockbroking and wealth management company, a dedicated partner of Rural Aid, today extended its generosity even further.   

Proceeds from its recent “little dry Friday” fundraising event in support of farming families impacted by adverse weather are being deployed to assist producers at opposite ends of the climatic spectrum. 

On one hand, proceeds from Morgan’s $360,000 donation are helping families still in the grip of drought or recovering from the big dry, while on the other assisting victims of the devasting floods impacting the NSW North Coast and elsewhere. 

Rural Aid CEO John Warlters said Morgans’ decision was a testament to the company’s deep connection to rural and regional Australia.  

“While the drought is still an ongoing issue for many of our farmers, there is a clear and critical need for urgent aid on flood fronts across the country,” Mr Warlters said.   

“These funds will provide a substantial boost to Rural Aid’s flood appeal and will make a real difference in farmers’ lives.”  

Rural Aid’s flood donation drive was launched on Tuesday and received more than $100,000 of generously donated funds in the first 24 hours.   

Currently, Rural Aid staff are working tirelessly to connect with flood-ravaged farmers, to determine and meet their needs. Rural Aid is offering farmers a $1000 emergency payment, mental wellbeing support, hay for livestock and drinking water where supplies have been contaminated.  

Donations can be made through the Rural Aid website
